    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Burns & McDonnell in April 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was online and pre recorded questions will appear. firstly write questions appear asking General profile, later interviewer recorded behavioural questions will appear. the interview process was very unfamiliar. We need to have good internet facility. Automatically the videos are very slowly recorded. That was the main treason fit my denial.

    Interview

    The first interview was strictly behavioral. They asked about why I wanted to be an electrical engineer and then why I would be a good candidate for the job. Really nice interviewer but failed to know some technical knowledge. Second interview they asked about rectifiers as a technical question.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Burns & McDonnell (Omaha, NE) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I was only given 2 days advanced notice about the interview which was the only negative part of the experience. I went to an on campus interview and really enjoyed the person from HR who interviewed me. It lasted 20-30 minutes and I left with a smile on my face feeling like I was seriously being considered and not that I had just wasted my time. I didn't get the position but was sent a personalized e-mail letting me know that they will keep my information on record and that I was the type of person they do want to hire in the future. This left a great impression on me about how much this company does care.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Burns & McDonnell in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was online and was about thirty minutes long. They asked about six questions and they required a video response the question were straight forward. There were issues with the recording process you get two attempts to answer one question and they will always choose the second attempt and it feels very unnatural to speak to a camera.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly straight forward. It begins with an online application and then you have an online interview. The first ten questions are basic fill in questions. Then it is followed by 6 behavioral questions. They were pretty standard.

    Interview

    I was contacted to do a video interview with Burns & McDonnell. There were five questions. After answering each question, I had the chance to watch my answer and rerecord the answer if I wanted. The questions were basic and asking about previous experiment and some behavioral questions. I did not receive an offer and I was told they are trying to match a position to my skills.
